** The President has the last name Rickard, as in ''ComicBook/{{Prez}}''.

* {{Retcon}}: Of sorts. ''ComicBook/TheDarkKnightReturns'' treats the absence of superheroes (and Superman having "sold out") as a consequence of a SuperRegistrationAct, with the unnamed president strongly implied to be UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan, who's super-aged and losing his sanity. Here, it's revealed that the whole scenario is due to Lex Luthor and Braniac holding the world (and Kandor) hostage via orbiting cannons and a hologram of the president (whose name is stated to be "Rickard", a reference to the comic ''ComicBook/{{Prez}}'').

* IntimateHealing: Superman is completely healed of his injuries after having sex with Wonder Woman. According to Miller himself, this was done to highlight the fact that women are "nurturers and life givers".

Overall it goes further off the deep end than ''The Dark Knight Returns'', almost to the point of being a Deconstruction of the DarkerAndEdgier nature of the first story though, naturally, not everyone thinks that makes it any good. The color palette is much more varied than ''The Dark Knight Returns''' muted colorization, taking it to an almost garish degree, that takes a little getting used to (many reviewers termed it ugly).

** The beating itself at least is justified by the fact that the Batboy himself reverted to his more psychopathic attitude and threatened to break her bones first. Now the whole killing but not killing on the other hand...
